.The autoinstaller offered from "Site Software" of the cPanel control panel only allows the installation of dolphin in a specific directory. If you wish to move Dolphin to the root directory of the website, the following steps need to be taken:
1) Install Dolphin into a directory
2) Move all files from the directory you installed Dolphin into to the root directory (you can do this using the file manager or a FTP client)
3) Edit the file inc/header.inc.php
4) Inside header.php, alter the variables: $site['url'] (to include just your URL and not the directory) as well as $dir['root'] (to include everything but the directory name that you installed to)
Also, dolphin sets up some cron jobs for notifications. Inside your control panel under the icon "Cron Jobs". You should see 3 cron jobs listed. All of these cron job entries have the directory you installed dolphin into in them. Please remove the directory name from the line. Furthermore, each file (periodic/cmd.php, periodic/cupid.php, periodic/notify.php) has a line at the top that includes the directory in it as well (as in step 6).
Warning: The above instructions are for Dolphin 6.1.5+ . Additional steps are necessary for older Dolphin versions.
You are done. Now visit your main URL and you should see Dolphin displaying without any errors. If you are not sure how to carry out the steps above, please contact support.
